Earth vs. The Spider (1958)/War Of The Colossal Beast (1958)
A giant arachnid is found in the desert (darn those pesky A-bomb tests!) and starts demolishing nearby towns before some hot-rodding local teens come to the rescue, in "B"-horror legend Bert I. Gordon's "Earth vs. the Spider." Ed Kemmer, June Kenney, Gene Roth star. AKA: "The Spider." Next, Gordon's cinematic fascination with things gargantuan continues in "War of the Colossal Beast," a follow-up to 1957's "The Amazing Colossal Man" in which the titanic title character is found living in the Mexican hills. Captured by the Army and brought to California, the atom-bombed behemoth escapes and throws Los Angeles into a panic. Dean Parkin and Sally Fraser star. 142 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
